When the situation is “serious”, GRAP recommends closing the brick kilns, quarries and hot mix plants, spraying water, regularly mechanizing the roads and generating electricity from natural gas.
Measures to be taken in the event of an emergency include halting the entry of trucks into Delhi, restricting construction activities and implementing a bizarre and even car distribution plan.
